Re: time to say goodbye to newbb?
Spot on! If I knew there was an intention to enhance newbb to include some of the features it's lacking over the Invision and Phpbb boards, then I'd have no hesitation in sticking with newbb. But to my knowledge there are no plans to develop the newbb feature set further (I may well be wrong on this), and the fact I don't posess the skills to code it myself means that if I wish to have these added features my current options are somewhat limited.
I'm not as involved in the XOOPS project as I used to be, other than trying to help market it. But I would be willing to bet that the Devs are working on enhancing NewBB for the next major release. And I'm sure the devs are monitoring this thread as well. I think other than complaining about NewBB and saying that PHPBB or IVasion etc.... is better, or contains more features than NewBB. I think a more constructive thread would be, you guys tell us what your dream enhancements to NewBB would be. I will put all the suggestions into a nice requirements document and then we can go from there.
I would actually be interested in finding out exactly what new features everyone would like to see added to XOOPS for the next few releases. Maybe we as a community can actually draw up a community roadmap, and then the new module development team, the core team, and other devs can submit hacks and improvements based on what everyone comes up with.
